TUESDAY, JUNE 30, 1970
U.S. SENATE, COMMITTEE ON COMMERCE, Washington, D.C.
The committee met at 9:35 a.m. in room 5110, New Senate Office Building, Hon. Vance Hartke presiding.
Present: Senators Hartke, Moss, Cotton, Pearson, Baker and Cook. Senator HARTKE. Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. The hearing this morning is for the purpose of considering the nomination of W. Donald Brewer of Colorado to be an Interstate Commerce Commissioner, and also for the promotion of two captains, Capt. William A. Jenkins and Capt. Austin C. Wagner, of that wonderful organization, the U.S. Coast Guard to the rank of rear admiral. And I understand Commandant Chester Bender is here with them.
Senator COTTON. Mr. Chairman, could I suggest that since we have two Senators here to testify on behalf of Mr. Brewer we take his nomination up first and then take care of the Coast Guard promotions? Senator HARTKE. All right. The biography of Mr. Brewer will be made a part of the record, and the financial statement will be received in the customary fashion.
(The biography follows:)
